Joy To Some .painful To Others
The fact that this time is for getting together with family and friends ....makes those that are alone feel even lonelier .
And the sight of people shopping for gifts for their loved ones , makes those that are in financial hardships ..feel worst since they are unable to buy anything for those they love..
I myself do not have much in the way of family to speak of , however was blessed with such a friend base that I literally am never alone...but I feel so much compassion for those without ...
I volunteer time to a homeless shelter where I live and I see the faces on the people especially this time of year and I feel so much empathy for them ... that I just want to grab each one and hug them and show them someone cares ......that someone is thinking of them ... and that if only for a little while they are not alone .
